I have no fix. But will share I don't install any CDRW as a disk drive at the office, lab and home because after years of experience I found it to be ... unreliable. Yes, I did find that a new drive and a fresh disk will work fine for a time but the annoying fact remains that it always fails about .1 percent of the time or a little less. This is not good enough for me.
As such, I don't use any incd, directcd or such and just erase and record the CDRW and now DVDRW media as I need. That has resulted in finding out when a media has worn out so I can toss that media and I don't lose what was on the media since my procedure allows for media failures.
Again, I offer no fix for incd, directcd or other but am sharing my experiences.
I have an IBM NetVista, 8305 H5U, P4, 2.8 gig, 528 mg hard drive. It came with Windows 2000, including DLA CD data buring application.
The unit came stock with a combo cd-dvd burner. Before deliver I had IBM install a second CD burner.
I use CD-RW as my primary medium, I replace zip drives with them. I use only data burning capabilities. DLA was inconsistent, it often didn't recognize a writable disk. This occures on both disk drives.
At IBM service's suggestion I installed Nero InCD4. It worked fine for awhile - and then corrupts. First it fails to recognize a writable disk, then it started to lose files, then it failed altogether. I have a new Dell lap top, Celeron processor, XP professional, and an old HP P2, 333 mgh, InCD seems to work fine on them (only one CD burner).
My tech professional tried a variety of answers, none helped. Each time, 3 or 4 times, it would start out ok and then corrupt after a couple of days (ie. loss of write capability, then loss of files, failing to recognize a disk in the drive). We upgraded to WindowsXP. Same result. Recently he replaced the combo unit and I tried using only one drive. Same result.
All disks are new, multiple company disks have been used, e.g. TKK, viacom, maxell. All have been formatted in InCD4. All have the same result.
It appears something is conflicting with the program.
Any help would be most appreciated.
